“Warm and comfortable”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

We stayed one night in a family unit, and were really pleased with the helpful personal service from the manager. The room was really warm - very pleasant on what was a cold wet day. Everything in the room was clean, modern, and in good condition. Initially, I was concerned that the room, being close to Main North Road, would be noisy. Many Christchurch motels are located right on main roads, and so some traffic noise is normal. However, we did not find it a problem. The sound proofing is quite good. In particular, the twin room that was to the rear of the unit was very quiet. If I needed accommodation in the Papanui area again, I would have no hesitation about making another booking.

Room Tip: If you are particularly sensitive to traffic noise, you might prefer a room at the rear of the compl...

Lovely warm welcome at the office, no complaints about the service, all good. Our unit was metres from the main road and we were kept awake most of the night by the traffic. Otherwise pretty decent motel unit, ticks all the right box's in an unspectacular kind of way. We wouldnt choose to stay again because of the noise.

Room Tip: ask for one away from the road.

In my line of work I stay in dozens of motels throughout NZ and therefore spend a lot of time absent from my dearly loved family. I could have never imagined I would meet such a wonderful and caring couple. I would rather stay at their motel with their beautful family than any other hotel or motel in the country.I will always look forward to seeing you and wish you all the best and thank you for your genuine and sincere friendship...

Room Tip: Room seven is the one you want but you'll be out of luck if i'm there..

My partner and I arrived here in the early hours after flying in to NZ. Thankfully we were only stopping off en route elsewhere.
The room was foisty and old-fashioned, and not very clean. The bedsheets were old and a little damp, and the en-suite bathroom was grim.
For the price, this place was very poor, although the host was helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: go elsewhere

This is the perfect place to stay before flying out or on your way into Christchurch. The owners could not have been more helpful or welcoming.
A big shopping centre just down the road is a perfect place to eat or chill out for a couple of hours.
